The Senior Management Committee were asked to reinstate their commitment to PDRs and share why they believe they are important.

Julian Hancock

WHY DO YOU THINK PDRS ARE IMPORTANT?

It is important to me that all members of the UG Teaching Team are supported in their personal development. PDRs are one opportunity to move the focus to the needs of each person (rather than the whole team). In our day to day work, inevitably, the needs of the whole team (or our students) tend to dominate - and PDRs are one of several ways we redress that balance.

WHAT BENEFITS HAS IT OFFERED TO YOU?     

The key benefit is the focus on the person. PDRs are an opportunity to really understand what makes my colleagues happy - and what frustrates them about their work. The protected time of a PDR meeting allows time for reflection on career goals and wider look at work/life balance.

HOW DO YOU BELIEVE IT WILL BENEFIT MEMBERS OF YOUR GROUP?       

PDRs allow individuals to set clear development targets and agree needs for addition training or attendance at courses. They can help each team member develop and fulfil themselves professionally.
